Lewis makes a romantic proposal, Kathy makes a big mistake and Sid makes a romantic gesture.

Radio Times: Lewis gets romantic.

Characters: , , , ,
  • It’s Valentine’s Day, and romance is in the Ambridge air. Lewis is taking Julia to dinner followed by a visit to the theatre.
  • At the Bull they’re giving red roses out to all the female customers. Sid’s cross because the florist sent Jolene pink ones from him, but Jolene doesn’t mind; she loved the card he sent. However, the romantic mood is shattered by a phone call from a hysterical Kathy. Telling Jolene that it was Jamie, in a state over a school project, Sid rushes off to see what’s wrong.
  • Julia’s enjoyment of her evening with Lewis is complete when he takes her to see Two Gentlemen of Verona – the first Shakespeare play she appeared in. Not only that – Lewis makes her a very romantic proposal, though Julia says she needs time to think about it.
  • Kathy has received a bunch of red roses and a card saying ‘forgive me’. She’s convinced they’re from Owen, and that he’s back in Ambridge. Sid manages to calm her down, pointing out that Owen wouldn’t ask for forgiveness, because he doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong. Gradually Kathy calms down and sees Sid’s point. But she asks Sid to take the flowers away.
  • A despondent Lewis thinks that Julia is going to turn him down, – she feels that she might not live up to his expectations. But once Julia is reassured and Lewis makes a declaration of his love for her, she accepts gladly. Lewis is the happiest man in the world.
  • A contrite Sid returns just as the customers are leaving the Bull. He expects Jolene to be angry, but when she sees the gold heart on a chain, engraved with the words ‘to the love of my life’, Jolene is completely won over.
